    Petey had his last vet checkup (for a while) on Tuesday and we finally got some good news! Dr was thrilled at his progress. That really spoke measures to me when he said that considering he was expecting the outcome to be pretty grim for quite a while. His front leg and left hind have healed beautifully and he uses them great. The right hind didn't form a joint in his ankle so he can't use that one properly yet but Dr is going to be consulting with some orthopedic surgeons to discuss the possibility of putting a rod in his little leg or whether the leg should just be amputated. I know all of that doesn't sound like good news for most but the fact that Dr was legitimately thrilled and that euthanasia wasn't even discussed this time makes me absolutely ecstatic!!

    Petey got the okay to move into an actual cage and out of the plastic tote finally and he is SO happy about it! He loves his antler that redwuff gave him and chews on his new toy frequently! He's growing into a happy, healthy boy and we am so thankful to have found the squirrel board and the plethora of knowledge that we've found here!

    Thanks for the pictures of your handsome Petey!

    Those photos have something to do with cell phone pics I think.

    You have to request from an admin to change it. You have to come up with a new name for the thread.

    Hey redwuff!!
    Sorry we've been MIA for a few days. It's been a pretty tough week in our household. Our sweet old pup had to be laid to rest.

    Little Petey is not so little anymore and he's doing great! He officially weaned himself! We are totally happy with that!!! He's also being very responsible with his eating habits! He mostly fills up on rodent block BEFORE he eats his veggies! He usually, by choice, goes to the block first! Unless, of course, there are blueberries involved hahaha! He THROWS his veggies out of the way to get to any blueberry! He's climbing well and he has been behaving well for Mom and Dad. Only a couple of rowdy times where we had to put him back in his cage. He has taken all of the newspapers out from the cage tray and filled his slipper hut now too

    I am sorry to hear about your old girl. May she come back spry as a young pup. You guys had a lot of history and I know you have a huge hole in your heart.

    As for Petey, it ainít so unless there are pictures
    Terrific about Petey doing so well on his diet. Is the block you are talking about Mazuri? It is amazing how easy to get them to eat right when the correct foods are offered. How is that back right foot? Any positive changes?

    He is climbing well with his hind right leg but still doesn't use it for walking around. It doesn't seem to get in his way though.
    Yes! He is eating the Mazuri block and it was so easy to get him to love it! We just didn't give him any other options for quite a while and ta-dah! He loves it!!

    I went in to get some new pictures of him and his newspaper nest this morning and he has his cage demolished

    Of course my pictures are sideways because I'm uploading from my phone, but you get the idea lol

    I am so excited to see that precious PeteyPancake. He looks wonderful! You are the best squirrel mom. Little PP is such a good boy. I love to hear he eats his block and loves it.
    Hope to see PeteyPancake soon !!

    Mr. Petey is up on his branch eating his block!! Don't let him fool you, he's totally rotten haha!
    Just ordered him a plush squirrel to keep with him. He always plays with my sleeve like its another squirrel so I figure why not get him a plush squirrel!
    Redwuff, I definitely would love to pursue a rehabbers license once I move to a state that allows it! Thanks for all of the help and experience!!

    Wow. I just read through this thread. Excellent work you guys. Thanks for trusting Redwuff enough to help you and putting the time, heart and patience into rehabbing, wiping dirty splints off, worrying, having hope, the late nights, etc. Really, really great job all around!!
